Ncube to replace Sandi-Moyo

THE Zanu-PF Bulawayo Provincial Women's League has recommended Central Committee member Judith Ncube to fill the vacant position of party deputy secretary for Women's League once occupied by Eunice Nomthandazo Moyo.

Moyo and former Women's League secretary for finance Sarah Mahoka recently resigned from the organ over allegations of undermining First Lady and Secretary for the organ Dr Grace Mugabe, corruption, insubordination and fanning factionalism.

The Bulawayo women's league also met last week where they called for the recall of Moyo from Parliament following her resignation from the Politburo.

The wing's chairperson, Eva Bitu, yesterday said a report had been sent to the First Lady and contained a recommendation for Ncube to replace Moyo.

"After the meeting on Wednesday, we compiled our resolutions and sent them to our boss the First Lady. We recommended that since Ncube was the second most senior person after Moyo before her resignation, she is now the most senior in the province and therefore qualifies to fill the position of deputy secretary," said Bitu.

"What we do in the Women's League is that the number one who is the most senior leader in the province becomes part of the top 10 in the national executive and the second most senior heads a department that is why Ncube was secretary for Lands and Resettlement as she was second after Moyo."

Bitu said part of the report includes a recommendation for Moyo to be recalled from Parliament and Zanu-PF National Commissar Saviour Kasukuwere to be relieved of his duties.

"We also raised it with the First Lady that since Moyo resigned from the Politburo and Central Committee, she is now an ordinary member of the party and must be recalled from the proportional representation seat in Parliament because she got it on the basis of being a member of the Women's League," she said.

"We reported to our mother that we also want Kasukuwere to be removed from his position for causing confusion in the party and setting parallel structures as was highlighted by the women in the meeting last week."

Mashonaland East on Wednesday became the seventh province to call for the expulsion of Kasukuwere.

Only Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South and Manicaland are yet to take a position on the matter.
